With 18+ hour workdays, the stress of the weather, markets, and limited healthy, one-handed dining options, it's easy to put health on the back burner during the busy seasons of planting and harvest. While in-person and online support surrounding nutrition and health seems almost endless these days, the unique challenges of the ag community, including both farmers and their families, have largely been overlooked. Food in the Field aims to fill this gap!
About the Program
This online or in-person nutrition education program was created by Nebraska Extension and is designed to help ag professionals, and their families, make better eating choices during their busiest times. With four quick and simple lessons (15-20 minutes), participants will:
